Our Mission

Extending health span and enabling the prevention and cure of later life health conditions through research, education, and promotion of geroscience.

Human life expectancy has nearly doubled since 1900 thanks to medicine's
immense progress against
infectious diseases.

However, a consequence is that the diseases of aging have replaced infectious diseases as humanity's leading cause of death.

After decades of failure to eliminate any major age-related disease, new insights into the way the human body changes as we age have led to unprecedented optimism concerning foreseeable treatment for today's most pressing conditions.

Geroscientists have devised hundreds of interventions that can extend the healthy lifespan of animals in laboratory studies.

These interventions have now started to leave the lab bench and make their way into the clinic, shepherded by a diverse group of scientists, physicians, drug developers, businesspeople, investors, and patients.

It’s therefore timely that the leading stakeholders in this emerging sector have come together to form the
Longevity Biotechnology Association, with the following goals:

Educate

To educate governments, the media, the public and the medical field about the promise of emerging therapies with the potential to treat or prevent multiple age-related conditions at once.

Collaborate

To collaborate in order to create and disseminate best practices in the geroscience field.

Advise

To provide insightful advice to those new to this field about approaches to geroscience and the technologies that it incorporates.

Work with

Regulators

To collaborate in order to create and disseminate best practices in the geroscience field.
